Re: Negatron.ini is missing - Error

Indeed, you don't need to install Java 11 or 14 with the Windows pack. You can keep your system-wide Java 8, Negatron simply uses its embedded version of Java 14. It doesn't work at restart because the entry chdman (6th line in negatron.ini) is empty, probably because Negatron couldn't find it autom...

Re: Warning: Unable to create history.db

This is an error output by MAME, not by Negatron, as history.db is a MAME file.
It's just my guess but MAME is surely trying to create it within a folder where it doesn't have the writing rights. Just go to your ui.ini, probably in ~/.mame, and change the entry "historypath" to a different path.

Re: Eternal Loading

If you can't get your machine back to normal even after deactivating all the options or uninstalling Media Preview and then rebooting your machine, this means something else is slowing down your computer. I can't help you any further here as I don't know what else you installed on your machine. I'm ...

And I found the culprit!
It's fixed locally so the next version of Negatron will fix this issue. Cheers!

Re: XSetErrorHandler() called with a GDK error trap pushed error

I think I'll go for fix 2/. It shouldn't be as complex as I expected.

On Windows and macOS, vlcj doesn't spawn any AWT threads and it shouldn't do so because Negatron embeds everything into OpenJFX. This is only done on Linux for some weird reasons. I'll go hunt and eradicate this.

Re: XSetErrorHandler() called with a GDK error trap pushed error

I finally understand what's happening. And it's indeed related to GTK3/GDK3. Negatron uses OpenJFX as its main graphical library. And OpenJFX 11+ has migrated from GTK2 to GTK3 but, with GTK3, a lot of Linux distros have changed the graphical backend from X11 to Wayland. So, OpenJFX 11 couldn't work...

Re: XSetErrorHandler() called with a GDK error trap pushed error

I'm on Fedora 31 and it was working fine as I never installed openjdk 11 before on my machine. I had Java 8, 13 and 14 installed. But as soon as I installed Java 11, I got the same bug as you. And now even after removing Java 11, the bug remains with Java 13 and 14... probably due to some config lef...

Re: 希望增加一些功能!

1.复制rom文件的功能就这样有用的了。我平时用PC玩电子游戏或者用chromecast播放到电视,不用手机玩古老游戏。但是下次negatron发布只跟java 8迁移到java 13有关。下下次发布应该会有这个复制功能。

PS 真的吗?我没有统计数据所以真的不知道有多少人使用negatron。博语软件的网站有英文、法文、中文的版本因为我是个法籍华人。不过我平时浏览英文和法文的论坛。有什么retrogaming中文论坛请建议一下 :)

Re: 希望增加一些功能!

谢谢使用negatron :) 你是台湾的网友吧。

1.需要的是复制rom文件吗?为什么要复制文件?negatron里面管理游戏列表有什么不足?我可以开发这种功能但不太明白有什么优点。对我来说,ROMLister、MFM等那种软件都没有用了 :P

2.不知道为什么还没想到这样强化gamelist的建立。游戏一名一名添加到favourites列表有时可是很麻烦的。

3.这绝对不行的。negatron应该管理街机、游戏机、电脑等各种不同机器。某台机器会必须什么准确配置来启动某款软件。因此,类似folders/series.ini里面的简单格式就不合适。

Re: I like this UI very much, but is there a way to only show the installed roms?

It shouldn't be a problem. Is Negatron still checking ROM statuses? This is the case if you can still see the progress indicator (blue loop) at the bottom right corner of the main window. Let Negatron finish its check and everything should be fine. You can hover your mouse above the progress indicat...
